What, you don't believe that bike is actually made out of Titanium?

I remember on a different forum, there were a series of threads where people got into fights about what went into Trek's proprietary Platinum Series Steel. I suppose even controversy gets people talking about it.

well played. Those housings remind me of those glow in the dark plastic anklets that were popular in 1987.

Titanium = Reno

Except for the decals and the lack of a triple chain ring, that bike appears identical to a Huffy Reno I just rehabilitated and gave away in my local bicycle charity project. Man, if I had only known that sweet, old-school frame was made from (surprisingly heavy, surprisingly rusty) TITANIUM, I would have kept it.

Come get it in Annapolis. I will NOT ship it. I will NOT deliver it. I will NOT hold onto it beyond Wednesday. Thursday morning it's in the trash. If you say you are coming to get it and bail on me I will NEVER deal with you again. If you've done this to me in the past don't respond because I will not deal you (You know who you are...). It is rusty. The Messenger seat is trashed. I don't know if this can be restored. There are no more pictures. Come get it...

Includes a free ant farm in the seat.

I'm asking $10.00 or bring a 12 pack of cold hard cider and sit around and BS about old school BMX for awhile...

Not only is it over-priced, the image has been reversed. I guess they used some image software to clean it up and clicked a button accidentally. Nonetheless, the guy's a bit of a ****er.

I think a WTF is for the way the front wheel looks. It just looks off. Can't put my finger on it.

I think I'd rather ride the cracker. Why is any bike with a corporate logo marketed as collectible? Are there seriously people that into Nabisco?

Dear Nabisco, sticking your name on this POS does not make me want to buy Nutter Butters.

Warning, clichéd backward fork photos: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Haro-Excape-...item3377a80df7

Nice rear derailleur cable routing on this one: https://www.ebay.com/itm/BRAND-NEW-HA...item3a763e74a7
(Makes you wonder why the guy went to the trouble of putting the thing together and then not using it. Did the 2 kids he speaks of just pop up out of no where, suddenly complicating his life? So many questions...)

My riding buddy came into town unannounced and I've since pared my stable down to a single bike! I'm looking to borrow your 17/19" Hardtail (or dually) for Sat-Sun-Mon. We're doing flat gentle riding in Wyoming, and your bike will come back undamaged and clean.

Money and/or Beer will be provided as compensation. I'll leave you with a copy of my DL and the money upfront for collateral.

Thanks!
